Chargois Discusses Cutbacks

 

BISD Superintendent Dr. Timothy Chargois presented the school board with additional cost cutting measures last night. Among the recommendations are reducing the district’s contribution to employee health plans by $131 a per month, eliminating busing for after school programs and activities for an estimated savings of $1 million, eliminating drivers education and reduction in other service areas that could save another $6.6 million. The district recently declared a financial exigency that could lead to up to 300 layoffs. Those

layoff notices are expected to be sent out by the end of the month.
